U2’s tour manager Dennis Sheehan was found dead at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood Wednesday.

First responders were called around 5:30 a.m. after reports that Sheehan, who was in his 60s, was under cardiac arrest, Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Chris Reade told The Associated Press. Sheehan was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sheehan managed U2, which kicked off a five-night “Innocence & Experience” tour in Los Angeles this week, for more than three decades.

Frontman Bono posted a statement on behalf of the band Wednesday.

“We've lost a family member, we're still taking it in,” the statement read. “He wasn't just a legend in the music business, he was a legend in our band. He is irreplaceable.”

Sheehan has worked with rock 'n' roll musicians since the '70s, including Led Zeppelin, Iggy Pop, and Patti Smith.

“With profound sadness we confirm that Dennis Sheehan, U2's longstanding tour manager and dear friend to us all, has passed away overnight,” Global Touring CEO Arthur Fogel said in a statement, according to the AP. “Our heartfelt sympathy is with his wonderful family.”

Twitter users shared their condolences once hearing the news:
